For our employees

Our goal is to become one of the most popular employers in Austria. To achieve this, we rely on strategic personnel management with employee-orientated work concepts, safe working conditions, customised training opportunities and appreciation for each and every individual. We are only successful with committed and competent employees.

All of us with our strengths

Inclusion of people with disabilities

Every person has individual abilities and talents that we would like to promote in the best possible way in our company. We pursue a holistic approach to the issue of disability. The vision "We think barrier-free, give employees, customers and partners the same opportunities" includes, among other things, an increase in the number of employees with disabilities and barrier-free websites.

Living diversity

LGBTIQ dialogues and awareness

The company's internal network for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and queer employees called different together ( actively and informatively addresses the subject of LGBTIQ and promotes the exchange of experiences among employees. Working together, the network implements ideas to reduce prejudice. 

Women's power

Women in top management

Studies clearly show that mixed teams with a similar proportion of men and women in management are more successful and productive. More than 50% of our stores are already run by female managers. But like many other companies, we are confronted with an imbalance of women and men in top management positions. We are actively counteracting this and offer the “Women's Drive” programme to deliberately establish women in leadership positions.

For more balance

Career and family audit

We are certified according to the Career and Family Audit. Many measures are already anchored in the company and are important components in the promotion of a balanced work and family life. Examples of this are regular invitations to exchanges between employees on leave and those responsible in the HR department or with their direct superiors, or support with holiday care. 

Doing good for yourself

Workplace health promotion

Satisfaction at work, recreation in leisure time and time with the family are the challenges of our society. This is where we want to support our employees. They are the heart of our company, which is why we advocate a good work-life balance. Workplace health promotion and its diverse options contribute to maintaining one's own health throughout the course of one's working life. 

Gaining valuable experience

Trainee programmes for university graduates

We offer annual entry-level international management trainee programmes and, since 2021, an international finance trainee programme. Both programmes last 16 months and consist of phases in the branch, abroad as well as rotations. In addition to the international programmes, there are national sales trainee programmes at BILLA and BIPA. We also offer various specialist trainee programmes.
